Print Story - Under Cover

As part of our American Southwest Collection, this print was designed by Santa Fe-based multimedia artist and pro mountain trail runner Christian Gering. ​​A monochromatic, reflective version of the “Star Cover” print rotated on a 45º axis like stars shooting across the night sky. This design represents a connection across generations to ancestors who guide us, lighting our path.

Print Story - Star Cover

As part of our American Southwest Collection, this print was designed by Santa Fe-based multimedia artist and pro mountain trail runner Christian Gering. Proliferating a single star (represented by a four-pointed directional cross) into a sky pattern, this joyful composition symbolizes the never-ending fabric of time and represents a connection across generations to ancestors who guide us, lighting our path.

Print Story - Summit II

As part of our American Southwest Collection, this print was designed by Santa Fe-based multimedia artist and pro mountain trail runner Christian Gering. The geological-inspired Summit design evolved from a conversation around "mountain logic" — how a runner forms the link between earth and sky through their ascent and descent of vertical terrain. Look for the ladder in the print, symbolizing that connection and transcendence.

Lightest, most comfortable shorts I have ever worn.

I've been running for over 15 years...these are hands down the lightest, most comfortable shorts I have ever worn. You really barely even feel them and they dry so fast. I've worn them running in the deserts of Utah and Arizona, rainforest of costa rica, and throughout the rockies. The only potential issue would be on longer runs (10+) if you are used to more of a long spandex brief-style liner. But for shorter stuff, or if you are used to the smaller liner, then you'll love these. Wish I had like 5 pairs of these.

Comfortable shorts for warm weather long runs

I usually wear 7” shorts, but got these for warm weather long runs and they work great. The liner leg holes are a smidge too tight for me and I wish they had side pockets, but I am happy. Definitely one of the better items I’ve gotten from Janji.

Favorite Shorts!

Whether you want nice shorts to run in or if you want nice casual shorts to wear around, you have come to the right place. I wear these shorts all the time and they are super comfortable and look very nice!

The most comfortable pair of running shorts I’ve ever owned

Nice short, but small liner

I got these for my boyfriend and while they fit his body well, the liner is too small and so they aren’t good for activities like biking… running ok tho.
